New California Case: Decision To Not Exercise An Option To Renew An Employment Contract Is Not An Employment Termination

August 18, 2012

New California case, Touchstone Television Productions v. Superior Court (Sheridan) (California Court of Appeal, August 16, 2012, Case No. B241137), holding that a decision by a company to not exercise its option to renew the contract of an actress for another season was not a termination of the employment of the actress. The actress had sued the company for wrongful termination in violation of public policy. The Court held that there is no termination of employment, but only the expiration of a fixed term contract.
